by eight a cnn reporter weeks later. for you to testify in our posture did not allow a rapid response, the posture was not there because we did not take into account the threats to the consulate. that is why four americans died. we could have placed forces there, could have had aircraft and other capabilities of short plays the way. so for you to testify before the committee consistent with what estimates is false. the military was appropriately respond to what was an appropriate response since no forces arrived in tel well after the murders took place for obviously your capabilities allow you to be positioned very shortly finally all of this as a result of the footprint. after gadaffi fell many of us made it clear they needed our help, a secure the arms cache, and secure borders, a technical assistance but the light footprint we did not provide for it was almost predictable, almost that bad things would have been in libya. here was a fledgling government, never governed before without assistance we could have provided. i beg you secretary panetta to send a hospital ship to treat the

of the consulate by a cnn reporter weeks later. so, for you to testify that our posture did not allow a rapid response, our posture was not there because we didn't take into account the threats to that consulate. and that's why four americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had aircraft and other capabilities as short distance away as that base. so for you to testify before this committee that they were consistent with available threat estimates is simply false. that our military was appropriately responsive, what would have been an inappropriate response? since any forces -- no forces arrived there until well after these murders took place and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. and finally, all of this is the result of the so-called light footprint. after gaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caveps, then help -- help them -- caches, help them secure their borders, but the light footprint we did not provide. so it was almost predictable, almost, maybe not predictable, that
for your time and your leadership. >> thank you, sir. [indiscernible] >> we will start with cnn, thank you. >>the vast majority of top security officials in the previous administration supported the syrian rebels. were you briefed about this plan when you were in the senate, and what do you think about the plan? do you think is time to start arming the rebels? what do you think of the mixed messages coming from iran, the foreign minister, where the president has said he would be open to talks with iran? the foreign minister had some nice things to say about you, but the supreme leader said direct talks are not possible. do you think there are prospects for a deal, and do you have a plan to move this forward? >> that was three questions. >> 1 plus 1 does not equal 2. >> well done, i am impressed.

of science. cnn reports he was joking but the comments come after that country allegedly sent a monkey to space and backs and senator john mccain has taken some heat from making a joke on twitter about ahmadinejad's comments yesterday tweeting so he wants to be the first iranian in space? wasn't he just there last week? it was a link to the monkey article. >> republicans criticizing mccain for that? >> i saw that. >> bill: i don't know. i know i'm supposed to be politically correct. i think it's okay to make monkey jokes about ahmadinejad. >> you're going to get letters. >> bill: peter ogborn. okay. i'm going to start evan, with you, with a story i didn't know about until this morning. broke late last night. and that is about american drone policy. we've been wondering nobody knows how many people we've killed. who makes the decisions -- with drones, how many americans, how many nonamericans, how many civilians, how many were really guilty. it is all a big, dark secret. john brennan is the architect of this policy. his nomination as director of c.i.a. i ran into senator ron wyden yeste
, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te
about the lack of security, including a message found in the rubble by a cnn reporter weeks later. for you to testify that are posture did not allow a rapid response -- are posture was not there because we did not take into account the threats to that consulate. that is why damn americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had -- four americans died. we could have placed forces there. for you to testify before this committee that their worth consistent and available threat estimates -- that there were consistent and available threat estimates is false. what would have been an inappropriate response? since no forces arrive there until well after these murders took place, and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. finally, all of this is a result of the so-called light footprint. after qaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caches, help clear their borders. the light footprint, we did not provide. it was almost predictable, almost. bad things were going to happen in libya
of cnn who together have a wonderful interview with clinton yesterday. thank you. over to elise. [applause] we have a lot of distinguished guests in the audience. the deputy chief of mission for the embassy of lebanon. a lot of people who care about syria and looks to be a lively discussion this evening. in august, 2011 secretary of state hillary clinton called for the president bashar al-assad to step down for the sake of the syrian people. at that time about 2,000 people were killed. today that number of u.n. estimates has risen to more than 60,000 syrian is dead, hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to turkey and jordan and iraq pleasing burdens on those countries, close to 2 million more, more than half have been displaced inside syria. what started as a brave stand has moved into a civil war with opposition forces becoming more radicalized, some of them would say infiltrated by extremist forces with links to al qaeda. the conflict threatens to destabilize the entire region and become a battleground for the proxy war some might say of competing interest. the and ratio
qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st
back to 1953 with president eisenhower. cnn live starting at 8:00 a.m. eastern on c-span 2. >> what i have discovered is that the absolute worst strategy to achieve happiness in life is to make that your primary goal. iif you make happiness what you're striving for, you will probably not achieve it. if you will end up being narcissistic, self involved, caring about your own pleasures and your own satisfactions and live as your paramount goal. happiness is best as a byproduct of other things. meaningful work and family, friends, good health, love, and care. we get happiness not by aiming directly for it but by throwing ourselves and to the right projects and fundamentally trying to have integrity and be a good person. >> bien "conscious capitalism," john mackey explored how capitalism can be lethal -- can lead to a better world. like us on facebook. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta talks about the automatic spending cuts known as the sequestration. the defense department's priorities and cyber attacks. he spoke to students. this is one hour and 10 minutes.
